Looking in

(via planthime)

in other news I had a dream that was like absolutely indistinguishable from real life for most of the dream and things were so good like exactly how I want it to be and then I woke up and it took me a minute to remember that this is reality not a shitty nightmare so now I’m sorta struck with this vague sense of longing for said dream

Abuela: mijo, te hago un sanwich?
Me: no, gracias abuela acabo de comer.
Abuela: te parto fruta?
Me: no, gracias.
Abuela: no quieres un jugo de naranja?
Me: no abuela.
Abuela: un vaso de agua?
Me: no, de veras estoy bien.
Abuela: come mierda pues.

"A study on masculinity and aggression from the University of South Florida found that innocuous – yet feminine – tasks could produce profound anxiety in men. As part of the study, a group of men were asked to perform a stereotypically feminine act – braiding hair in this case - while a control group braided rope. Following the act, the men were given the option to either solve a puzzle or punch a heavy bag. Not surprisingly, the men who performed the task that threatened their masculinity were far more likely to punch the bag; again, violence serving as a way to reestablish their masculine identity. A follow-up had both groups punch the bag after braiding either hair or rope; the men who braided the hair punched the bag much harder. A third experiment, all the participants braided hair, but were split into two groups: those who got to punch the bag afterwards and those who didn’t. The men who were prevented from punching the bag started to show acute signs of anxiety and distress from not being able to reconfirm their masculinity."
